Roller Coaster Launches But Doesn't Make It Over The Hill!

posted by CRob -

Cedar Point is the second oldest operating amusement park in the United States and home to sixteen roller coasters! One of which launches you at a speed of 120 mph in only 3.8 seconds while launching you 420 feet high called: Top Thrill Dragster! It is an exhilarating experience to say the least!!

But what happens if the train of the roller coaster doesn't make it all the way up the 420 foot hill?! IT ROLLS BACKWARDS! Yes, on rare occasions, the train does not launch with enough speed to clear the peak of the hill and then rolls back down the hill in reverse to try again! 

When Top Thrill Dragster was built in 2003 it broke many records including the World's Tallest and Fastest roller coaster! The second video below is enough to get your heart racing! Would you dare?

Check out video of the "rollback" below:
